Hayden was an awesome tour guide and we had a lot of fun snorkeling & seeing a lot of really cool fish. He even dove down to bring us up a starfish! Overall he was educational, professional and showed us a great time.


What a great experience! This was my first time snorkeling in about 20 years, and Chandler helped me feel safe even though I was nervous. We had such a great time that we called the company directly and re-booked with Chandler the next day! I would definitely use and recommend this company for any adventure!


The beach was an easy meet up, the guide was in contact with me and made everything go smooth. The beach has beautiful coral reefs, colorful fish, sea urchins and more. We got to see two turtles up close! Our guide was pointing things out to us and brought a float just in case we were tired. It was doable for about 1.5 hrs definitely worth the money!!


Haden was a great guide who was fun to chat with! He had some great tips for snorkeling and was able to point out a bunch of cool things! We were able to see a few turtles and sharks


Hayden was really cool and very knowledgeable about the fish in the water and helped us find a sea turtle to see. The experience was awesome, and Hayden was very helpful. 5/5


We had a great experience with our guide, Dave. There were two families in our group, 4 adults and 5 kids. Dave used a raft to keep visible and also to allow anyone to take a quick break if they were tiring. Flotation vests were optional but available. We gotten for flippers, washed our masks and explored the reef for over an hour (wish it would have been longer but some of the kids in our group were tired). We saw many, many fish, a turtle and a shark. Awesome trip!


We had such a great experience with Chandler! It was the first time snorkeling for most of our family which includes 2 elementary school age kids. Chandler was great about scaling the experience so that we all had fun and got to see awesome sea life. One of our kids ended up being uncomfortable with the snorkel mask and Chandler didn’t miss a beat in accommodating. We had all of the equipment we needed and felt very safe the entire time. Would absolutely recommend!


Dave was an awesome guide and the snorkeling trip was amazing. I can't recommend this tour more! We went with two adults and 11 year old and all loved it!


We went straight from the beach. Lots of waves coming in. Not much fun to be had. I guess I thought we were going to go out on a boat and snorkel some place more calm. My advice is to pay more money and do a better snorkeling trip. Preferably one from a boat. We wouldn’t do this again. Kind of a bummer.


Overall great experience! We saw a nurse shark and silver angel fish. The only downside was that we paid $35 for Go Pro footage from our instructor, but the videos were mid quality.
